    Score! Marmot Mountain Works is a great find, even better if it fits!

    Any way to re-proof the shell? This, with my Mamut Gore-tex snowpants should serve me well if we get the snow we're supposed to.

    Had a decent week and big plans to take a bunch of pics / measurements yesterday but played golf instead and continued drinking in a bad attempt to curtail the hangover from Friday night (Go Royals).

    Did want to share this though - N/A.

    aw hell, i was going to post all my finds today but ill get to that later. This puppy is fantastic. @impuntura @330CK @ChetB i know (think) its a chesterfield but any thoughts on date or any other things? Its a keeper, not a flipper. No markings that I can see. The bottom feels like metal springs under a canvas sheet that is hand nailed to the frame.

    Credit to my wife for spotting it before me. It was $59. I hope that was worth it.

    Yeah thats embassy grade right there.
    Here you might get 250 to 300 for it just because mid century is the rage and thats way earlier.but the good news is,besides being awesome of course ,is that you can sell that today or ten years from now in an hour.
    Thats a keeper though.
